New summer love: grilling. Since being home I’ve been making a lot of dinners for my family and I love to experiment with new recipes on the grill. Here is a quick and easy recipe for some tasty eggplant:

Zesty Grilled Eggplant

  • 2 medium eggplant
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning (or other herb of your choice)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Slice the eggplant into slices (about 1″ thick). Place eggplant slices into a large Ziploc bag and add the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and spices. Seal the bag and shake it around to be sure that all of the eggplant get some of the marinade action. Set aside. When your grill is ready and hot throw on the eggplant and grill for about 3-4 minutes on each side.

Zesty Grilled Eggplant: Tara Tested, Tara and Family Approved! This grilled eggplant is very tasty and versatile. I decided to chop some up and add it to a salad, while my Mother used a slice or two in a sandwich. You could add it to a pasta dish or even combine it with other grilled veggies on a kabob. The summer is a great time to load up on fruits and vegetables, and if you don’t eat much eggplant, I suggest you give this recipe a try!
